5:51am
temperatures. we have a slower nature to the revolution of this pattern that is blocking an area of low pressure offshore. so live doppler 7 hd shows that we do have a little bit in the way of cloud cover and the marine layer has continued to be mixed on out because of this system that sits offshore. so that inversion is gone and we are just looking at some cool numbers into the 40s due to the clear sky, the calm winds, and with that the temperatures dropping to the due point. we do have some chilly readings there in the napa valley. 55 in the city with 54 in fremont and 52 in livermore this morning. we will call it partly cloudy. more clouds favoring the north bay. just a few high clouds today. plenty of sunshine. and the showers become a little bit more possible, but still edging toward the southern portion of the bay area come tuesday and into wednesday. so this system still staying offshore, and then sinking south. so notice, it really hasn't
5:52am
moved at all. and that's because we have a blocking pattern going on, and with that a couple of systems rotating around the low and that's allowing for still some dryer air to be pushed into the bay. a lot of sunshine. and just us ting to look at this finally sinking to the south. but today, the forecast is just for a few high clouds and then come monday shower chances have been removed. it's not until late tuesday we will see a few more clouds, mid-level clouds swing on up and then into wednesday as the low sinks south, value california, southern california, maybe the higher elevations of the future bay, haven't cruz mountains could see an isolated shower but still not a whole lot expecting out of that. temperatures in the upper 70s so a little bit warmer today in sacramento with low 80s in fresno. a cool start in the mountain, though. low 60s for afternoon highs and dig

big sur, low 70s. golden gate park, a few high clouds but still a nice afternoon, 67 in oakland with the mid-70s returning for gilroy today. 74 in hollister, 64 in monterey. the look ahead calls for the numbers to drop off a little bit with a few more clouds tomorrow. low 70s, mid-60s around the bay with just about 60 at our coast and finally by thursday it looks like the system sinks off. but we could see a few raindrops tuesday and wednesday and some mid-70s. but things getting a little more active, even into next weekend. we could look at another system or another warming trend, sort of either way. we will be watching it. >> and that is what you have to watch because it could go either way. >> yeah, certainly. >> you will be watching it as we get closer. >> i will. >> next, a heartbroken dog makes an amazing journey, almost unbelievable. the adventure the of zander would let nothing stand in his way of being by his owner's side.
